Hello, Following the timeline published earlier (and copied to ), Python 3.7 deprecation starts today. All developers are requested to install Python 3.8 and start testing their packages against it. While at it, testing against Python 3.9 would also be welcome.
QA reports provide a list  and a graph  of packages needing porting. To be honest, the only major nuisance in Python 3.8 I can recall right now is that 'python-3.8' pkg-config file no longer includes '-lpython3.8' and packages that need it need to switch to 'python-3.8-embed' instead. If you can think of other problems, please ping me and I'll add some tips to python-guide  soonish. As usual, please add or fix tests to your packages. Python 3.8 is planned to become the default on 2020-12-01. Thank you all for your hard work!  https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Python/Implementations#Implementation_support_timeline  https://qa-reports.gentoo.org/output/gpyutils/37-to-38.txt  https://qa-reports.gentoo.org/output/gpyutils/37-to-38.svg  https://dev.gentoo.org/~mgorny/python-guide/ -- Best regards, Michał Górny
